Year view on bookings

We've added another view type to the main bookings menu.  There is now a "Year" view which shows you a full year of calendars for a single property at a time.

We added this view so that you can quickly see the full picture of how well a property is booked for the current year.  The top scroll (right/left) buttons allow you to jump between years.

Just like the ribbon and month view, you can hover over bookings to see more information or click empty days to get a quick quote.

If you're suddenly feeling a sense of deja vu, it's probably because we recently released a year calendar widget that looks similar.  This booking view is similar to the calendar widget, only enhanced for styling and interactive behavior.

This makes four different views you can use to look at your bookings.  Here's a refresher on the other three...

I'd love a tiny improvement on the year view, which is to visually indicate today's date on the calendar for quick orientation. Usually I am looking for the current guest, or next or previous, so that would be super helpful.

Hi Daniel,

Good morning!

Yes, you're 100% right! We need to add a "Today" color and the same for holidays (as we do on the other views). I'll check with dev and see if it's possible to hotfix this in with the current schedule. No promises, but great idea.

@Daniel M: This was updated as part of a recent hotfix. Today, Holidays and turn-over blocks are now highlighted and colored. Enjoy!

Thanks for working on this. Unfortunately I am not seeing it on my dashboard yet. In particular my only interest was today's date. If today is already booked, then you have a conflict of two colors (the other being booked), and I hope the today color wins..

Mmm, that's a good point. Damn, your calendar is stacked nicely already for this year -- hardly a day out.

I tweaked it a bit so the number bubble will show the today color -- that way you'll be able to see it on top of the booking if it is there. You're not subscribed to any holidays in settings, but if you were, you'd see those too now.

How's it look on your end now?

Thanks for quick turnaround, yes that is definitely better. FWIW, I think VRBO's old calendar gets the visual treatment perfect... really sticks out with a round green circle, i.e. you have both shape and color as the indication plus their tooltips/popups work for those days just like any other day... but again, I appreciate what you have done already, that works for me - thanks!
